The Galloway School is Atlanta's best-kept secret. I have two children in Middle Learning (middle school) who love going to school every day. When asked about school, they respond that learning is fun, it's a safe place to try new things, the kids are welcoming and it feels like home. As a parent, I have observed such a special community of teachers, parents, and kids. The teachers encourage the kids to be accountable for their work and actions. They are focused on the "game of learning" rather than the "game of school" so that they will be lifelong learners with intellectual curiosity. The teachers are very involved in each student's learning and success.
